BRUSSELS - NATO allies are set to agree on Thursday to increase troop levels for the alliance's Afghanistan training mission by some 3,000 personnel, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said.

About half of those additional troops will come from the United States and the other half will come from non-US NATO allies and partner countries, Stoltenberg told journalists on Monday ahead of a meeting of the alliance's defense ministers later this week.
